Justin Addy
Office Manager


Hello! My name is Justin Addy. I am a life-long native to Coshocton County. I have worked at various places locally including JII Promotions/School Annual Publishing, Serenity Tea House, Linnet's Flowers on the Square, and the Coshocton County Recorder's Office.
I first learned to know Leslie when we worked together at the Tea House and we have been friends ever since. When Leslie offered me a position at her brand new company, I was excited for the opportunity to work for and with her, again. 
Coshocton has always been my home and holds many important features of my life; my family, friends, Church family, and community ties. I am a member of the Kenne United Methodist Church where I play the keyboard for the choir and Sunday morning service. I also am on one of three bowling teams from Keene that participate in the Church League at Legacy Lanes. 
I have always appreciated being part of a small community where friends and neighbors genuinely care for one another. That is part of what makes working for Leslie so special; knowing that she truly cares for and champions for people in need. I am grateful for the opportunity to assist Leslie in providing an environment that is welcoming and comfortable for people to come and share their lives with us.
